The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Looks like you have all the advice you need in here, looking back at your paper log on Friday you def had stalled on the deads and squats while working at that intensity and weight.

    Absolutely mate.

    I'm hoping this new split will help ease off the intensity and get the weights moving quickly again!

    Day Forty Nine - First Day of New 5 Day Routine

    Squats:

    6x44
    6x132
    6x176
    6x220
    6x265 PR
    1x265
    220 x2x2x2


    Rack Pulls:

    6x44
    6x132
    6x220 x2x2x2


    Calf Raise:

    6x75
    6x174
    6x234
    6x234

    ---------------

    Summary:

    Squat's starting to move. Woot! I couldn't do the 2,2,2 at that weight, managed one and knew it wouldn't happen, so dropped down to 220 for my clusters. I want 1 rep at 3pps within the next few coupla weeks.

    Eased off on RPs and CRs after squat PR.

    Cheers, Coke - I'm chasing down 3plates!

    I'm more impressed with my gf's (Emma_Marie's) squatting than my own - she's gone from squatting 20lbs, to 132lbs for 6 in only a few weeks. With perfect form too!

    Just a little change, and BOOM, you bust out a squat PR. Glad it's working out so well for you. Keep up that great work.

    Cheers OR. Goes to show that it pays off being part of a community like this.

    Without everyone's advice I'd've probably gone off at some crazy tangent and ended up slowing myself down more.

    Looking good gazzy. You made some great progress already and with the slight change on HCT-12 you will be looking at even more progress.

    Thanks a lot guys, appreciate all the positive comments, really keeps me going.

    Got three weeks left of bulking, then I'm gonna do a mini-cut, try to get rid of 3-5% bf. Then carry on bulking again, but keeping bf a little lower.

    Just made up 2k of today's calories at MaccyD's haha.

    Not long mate. I'm not fat by any means, but I'm a little bit softer around the mid section than I would like.

    I know my gf loses 2-3lbs a week when dieting. I'd like a slower loss than that, maybe 1-2lb a week. So if I make it a slow loss for 6 weeks then I think that'd be me sorted and I can get right back on the bulk.

    Not so much a cut, really, as a tidy up.
